The DIRT Dad Fund assists another member of the D/MIRT Family in need: Terrel and Nicole Brown
"We are extremely appreciative of the generosity of the DIRT Dad Fund to help my wife. I have been a member of DIRT pretty much since it was created, and on Zwift since the alpha stages, so, it has been amazing to see DIRT grow in the way it has.
My wife was diagnosed 14 months ago with Stage 3C Ovarian cancer, and since then has been through multiple surgeries and 7 lines of chemo, only to find that nothing is working. She has 2 new tumors that are growing and is running out of options. We were presented with an option for a the CHIPSA hospital in Mexico who have 4 different Immunotherapies that are currently not FDA approved in the US but that have seen high success rates in patients in Nikkis position. We have decided to make that trip and undergo those treatments, and we start them on the 23rd of this month.
Unfortunately Insurance does not cover anything as this is outside of the US and not approved by US Insurances. The total cost will be right around $40,000. The funds donated from DIRT fund will go directly to these expenses that we will be paying in the next 2 weeks. We could not be more thankful for the support the community has given to us, and we look forward to paying that back once we are out of this period of our life. We hope for the best in these treatments and pray that they are able to find something new to work on her at this stage in her cancer diagnosis.
Thank you again for the donation and support, please keep saying prayers and sending the positive thoughts, we appreciate it all!"
